I moved to Canada for 6 months when I turned 18, which quickly turned into two years. Canada is the perfect destination for mountain lovers with amazing skiing and snowboarding in the winter and some of the best hiking and rock climbing in the summer, not to mention that Canadians are probably the friendliest people in the world (yeah sorry Aussies). I was living in Lake Louise for the majority of the time, which is a tiny village in the Rocky Mountains surrounded by snow-capped mountains, glacier-fed lakes and abundant wildlife. I also spent a few months living in Vancouver and Whistler before camping around British Columbia in a van. Before departing I also made my way over to Montreal, Quebec City and Toronto. This blog highlights the best of Canada through photos.
